Outreach and Engagement

MHRS Outreach and Engagement 

MHRS Outreach and Engagement (O&E) provides field-based access and linkage to treatment and/or support services for those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and who have had difficulty engaging in mental health services on their own. O&E staff identifies participants through street outreach and referrals from community members and/or providers. 

Outreach for Increasing Recognition of Early Signs of Mental Illness

The Outreach for Increasing Recognition of Early Signs of Mental Illness program is intended to reach “potential responders,” i.e., community members who are working with or likely to encounter individuals who are experiencing, or at elevated risk of experiencing, a mental health challenge. At-risk individuals can include, but are not limited to, PEI Priority Populations such as unserved and underserved racial/ethnic communities; immigrants and refugees; children and youth who are at risk of school failure and/or juvenile justice involvement; foster youth and non-minor dependents; individuals who have been exposed to trauma or are experiencing the onset of serious mental illness; the LGBTQ community; and those experiencing homelessness.
